Additional information

BASF (1988) is an acute toxicity study on aquatic invertebrates following the EU C.2 guideline. The test species was Daphnia magna. The test was conducted under static test conditions and the test duration was 48 hours. Five test concentrations were used between 31 and 500 mg/L. The GLP status of the study is not known and there was no analytical monitoring so the effects are based on nominal concentrations. The study is considered to be reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint.
